Barracks Row Main Street Garden Party Kicks Off Summer 2011 on Capitol Hill


The 2011 Barracks Party was awesome! Sponsors, guests, national and local political leaders and supporters of Barracks Row Main Street gathered at the spectacular Deer House, on June 7 to meet the chefs of 8th Street and sample their signature dishes. This year’s chefs included: Chef Brian Kline of Senart’s Oyster and Chop House, Chef Shannon Troncoso of Matchbox Food Group, Chef Lance Hadan of Lavagna (opening soon at the site of Starfish Café) and Chef Tess Wolf of Hello Cupcake.

Music was by Marshall Keys - he plays a sweet sax.  The Georgetown Chimes added up-beat vocal harmonies. Displays of products from many of 8th Street retailers extended the celebration of Barracks Row Main Street’s revival throughout the Deer House garden.

Special Thank You to all of our sponsors and to Tip and Connie Tipton, who made Deer House available for the Barracks Row Main Street 2011 Garden Party.
